Summer is the perfect time for cocktails, cool drinks and awesome times with good friends. I mean let’s get real, we can say cocktails are perfect for just about every season right? It’s hot right now though so we are celebrating our #FriendsdayNight with a tasty and chilled Raspberry Watermelon Cooler. These are non-alcoholic so even the smallest or those of you who are expecting can join in on the fun.
Raspberry Watermelon Cooler
This cooler requires only just a few simple ingredients and in my mind, that makes it all the better.
- IZZE® Sparkling Water Beverage Raspberry Watermelon
- 2 lbs of fresh watermelon
- 10 oz of fresh raspberries
- 2 tbsp sugar
- ice cubes
- 2 tbsp mint leaves optional
Puree in a mixer, all of your watermelon and approximately 7ounces of raspberries, sugar, and the mint. If you aren't big on mint you can choose to leave it out.
Pass the pureed mixture through a sieve to get out any seeds and pulp. Allow to chill.
When you are ready to create your Raspberry Watermelon Cooler add enough puree into each glass to fill approximately half way, toss in a few ice cubes and fill the rest with the IZZE® Sparkling Water Beverage Raspberry Watermelon.
Top your coolers with leftover raspberries, watermelon, and mint.
There was no need to prep fancy foods for this party with our friends. We opted to go for comfort, toss the phones into a bin and share in some good old-fashion conversation. We may even break out a few board games and have some good laughs. It is our night of stress-free dining and tasty drinks with great friends. That is how we do our Friendsday Night, super casual.
